Tornado delays Caribbean games opening ceremony
A tornado has hit the venue for the XXI Central American and Caribbean Games in Puerto Rico, forcing a delay to the opening ceremony.
The twister slammed into the Olympic stadium in the western town of Mayaguez hours before the games were due to begin.
It tore down a lighting tower, smashing cars and injuring five people.
The start of the games - in which 31 nations are taking part - was rescheduled for Sunday.
The tornado swept in suddenly from the sea, battering the stadium with spouts of water.
"The wind was like something out of a movie," said the president of the Games organising committee, Felipe Perez.
People who had already arrived at the stadium were evacuated.
Organisers considered moving the opening ceremony to a baseball stadium next door, but then decided to postpone it until Sunday in case of more severe weather.
